Read and Re-Read

Posted by AJ Blythe at Thursday, February 18, 2010

I recently read a blog where the author stated the worst crime over summer was for someone to say they re-read a book. What the...? Apparently, to re-read is to admit to being arrogant, narrow-minded or dim.

Well, I guess I must be all three.

I love to re-read. To slip into a worn favourite is like slipping on your old slippers. Cosy, warm and comfortable. I have books I have been re-reading for over 20 years - and I'm still not tired of them.

When I'm published I love to think that there might be readers out there who want to re-read my work. That would be the ultimate compliment.

Hi Anita
Why wouldn't you re-read? My memory is so bad that I find it educational to return to a book I read some years ago - I discover new things I'd missed the first time around. My youngest daughter re-reads the books she loves all the time.

I can't understand why that blogger made those comments.

I hope it's not someone you know!

Oh blechh...Rereading is one of the true pleasures in life. Heck, I've got books I've read more than 20 times e.g. Georgette Heyers, JD Robb's etc.

What a silly comment to make. That person needs a blat on the head with the Oxford Dictionary.
